A crane motor that was travelling at a speed of about 300km/h is being returned to the road.
The crane motor was last seen driving along the east coast of New South Wales on May 6.
The motor was taken to the Royal Hobart Hospital after the motor was lost in the flood waters of the Hobart River.
The vehicle was towed to the hospital in Melbourne.
Dr Chris McKeever from the Royal Hospital of New Zealand said the crane was last inspected by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau in April, and there was no indication it had broken down.
The Australian Federal Police and Queensland State Emergency Service also conducted searches and recovered two parts of the motor, and two of its accessories.
Mr McKeiver said the police and Queensland state rescue service had been contacted by crane enthusiasts who had taken the motor for their own use.
“The search and recovery of these parts is not only a matter of national significance but also an important reminder of the importance of safe and sound infrastructure,” he said.
Mr McMorrisons crane was removed by crane operator, KK Crane.
The police and state rescue services are asking anyone with information about the crane’s whereabouts to contact them.
